xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding, and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto® tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of dvt and pe, with no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for me. ask your doctor about xarelto® today. >> well, she may be in her 08s but she is also a notorious jewel thief who is known worldwide as ryan takeo shows us. it looks like she has her

of a documentary about her life of crime. here she was in 1999 after being arrested in denver. >> i didn't just steal jewelry, i had to learn the business. >> she is wily, you know. she had a glint in her eye. >> reporter: she wanted to make sure word got out that the thief who is all over the world is now right here. >> she still looks somewhat frail, but she is sharp as a tack. >> ryan takeo, kpix5. >> this happened hours after doris payne was released from jail on tuesday morning. she was arrested for trespassing in a store on post street. some new clues tonight about apple's next big thing. code name project titan. the mysterious mini van has been spotted. we have shown you pictures of it. the wall street journal is reporting apple is working on an all electric vehicle that is
